Plus sized doesn’t mean UGLY

I am a plus sized woman who actually buys clothes from the men’s department of stores 1) coz it has more variety than the women’s department; 2) it’s 3 times cheaper than the women’s dept and 3) because they fit.

LIFE

I’ve just had a breast reduction and while I’m still a size 18 I’ve gone from a G cup to a B cup in a matter of hours.  What does this mean?  It means that things fit me – I don’t have to buy a 22 to fit around my boobs.  I no longer have to sew the front so that the buttons don’t open on their own or gape.  I might even get the opportunity to wear a dress for the first time in 30 years.

What I really find offensive though is that when you go into stores with PLUS SIZES the designs are nothing like for a size 8 – 16?  Instead of the pretty pink or perky peach I’m subjected to black and white stripes (going the wrong way to make me look even bigger) or a combination of many colours with a very low neck (not my style) and sleeveless which doesn’t hide my “overhang”.  Why can’t that pretty pink or perky peach go up to a size 26?  What you couldn’t find enough material?  While I understand big is beautiful and it’s exciting to wear colour if you want to be like every one else why can’t you dress like everyone else?  Give me a pale green or pale blue in a size 18 and maybe we can talk.

Going on line is obviously the way to go but I’m scared that it won’t fit and the thought of packaging things up and returning them only to wait to get the right size is something I don’t want to do.  I’ve already bought two things on line and both had to be returned – I don’t want to go for three.  BUT if I want to look like a professional I’m going to have to go out on a limb and experiment to ensure that my look suits me and makes me feel comfortable.

I am having the best time of my life. I'm 50 plus, divorced, two grown children and just the opportunity to have a life after so many years of scrimping and saving is well worth the time it took to get here. I have a fantastic family with great family values and spending time alone is certainly something I enjoy which a lot of people find difficult to handle. I was born and raised in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia and cannot imagine living anywhere else. Strangely I don't like to travel and have no plans to do that in the future - I say strangely because so many people can't understand this, wanting to travel and experience other cultures - not on my agenda. I love to write and writing romance keeps me from going completely mad. I have found a job that I absolutely love and there are times it affords me time to type out my stories since I write all my stories by hand - I'm never without a pen or book. My motto is ... "People may forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel" I've had many people who I can't even remember their names tell me that I made them feel good and for that I am truly grateful. I have become an avid reader of Rhonda Byrne's 'THE SECRET', "THE POWER" & now 'THE MAGIC". Whether you believe or think it's a load of @#$!@ - I do know that it works for me and my life and I am all the better for it. The Law of Attraction is something very close to my heart and I can honestly say with certainty that it works for me. I am truly grateful for the life I have been given and continue to enjoy. You can't go wrong when you just learn to say "thank you".
